RE: [Aroid-l] Anthurium largest leaves

Title: RE: [Aroid-l] Anthurium largest leaves
The question is an interesting one - unfortunately, the underside midrib for both species is described using the exact same wording in Croat's descriptions: "convexly raised below becoming more acute at apex." However, the petiole of A. spectabile is distinctly quadrangular in cross-section, whereas A. pseudospectabile's petioles are not, being more subterete to terete, perhaps even somewhat bluntly four-sided, but definitely more rounded. The leaf blades are also more undulated in the latter species, and more narrow proportionally as well. Hope this helps.


Good question Denis.  Can you tell me if the midrib underside the A spectabile leaf is round or pointed "u-shape or v-shape"? 
That will tell me which is which in my own collection.  Billy never did like plant IDs visible in the plants but I shouldn't count on my memory!  Tried to read Dr. Coats fine description, but got lost in terminology.  Thank you Denis and / or anyone else that can speak to the accurate response.
Dr. Croat, your input is greatly appreciated.

Are you sure that picture with the cute lady is of a long leafed Anth. spectabile isn't a picture of Anthurium pseudospectabile instead? I do not recall spectabile being so long and so pointed at the tip...I recall them being more rounded off.
